look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2

Look - Clear yellow in color, quickly vanishing thin white head, no lacing.

Smell - Sweet corn syrup, grain, metallic

Taste - Thin malt body, very odd and off-putting sweetness, almost an overly ripe/rotten white grape flavor, finishes with the lingering sweetness

Feel - Light body, sufficient carbonation, could be more crisp

Overall - No idea what's going on here. I bought a can so I know it couldn't be skunked. The borderline offensive sweetness makes this unenjoyable.

Piss yellow, fizzy head, and a lively carbonation dont make for a particularly visually appealing brew, but damn does that can design look fantastic. The smell is vegetal -- particularly corn -- with sharp notes of compost pile and malt liquor. Taste is pretty standard AAL: heavy on the grain and corn with little hoppiness or maltiness. At least it feels refreshing.

Straight 3s for this beer. Its actually exceeding my expectations quite honestly. Goes down pretty smooth and would be enjoyable on a hot day for sure. Golden color with little to no head after a few seconds. Poured from the 25.4 oz can into a big mug, got this and a tall fosters pale ale for 4$, not bad.
